I know that’s a lot of exclamation points in the title, but I positively cannot contain my excitement. The past 24 hours have left me utterly exhausted, but I had to update everyone before I went to bed. Last night was AMAZING. I’m struggling to come up with words to describe the tangle of thoughts and feelings and emotions I’m experiencing right now.
There was the fear of performing, and then the rush of the actual performance, and then the realization that not only did people really dig my act, they actually thought I was a sexy bombshell to boot. I’m torn between the high of “Oh my gosh…I can’t believe I really did it,” and the low of “Oh no…I can’t believe it’s over.”
The indescribably awesome Lisa of Stocking Vixen and MyBackseam (the place to join if you’d like a naughtier take on lingerie and stockings than what I show here) was in attendance, and she had the following to say right after my performance:
“Treacle was the best one in the whole show tonight. A women behind me said, “wowwwww,” when Treacle got her jumpsuit off, and a guy yelled for an encore when she was finished. IMHO if she wanted to pursue burlesque, she absolutely could. “
And well…the pursuit of burlesque is what I’m thinking of right now. Not only does my passion for burlesque nicely complement my addiction to lingerie, I’ve become absolutely enamored of the art form over the past six weeks. I loved telling a story with my character, and there’s no comparison to the rush of a crowd whooping and hollering and cheering you on. Burlesque 202 starts in a few weeks, and I’m seriously considering signing up for it.
Okay….enough of my gushing, right? Photos and video are on the way and should be posted within a month. The audience wasn’t allowed to take pics or video (for good reason…privacy is a big deal), so I have to wait on professional versions of both. But I promise that as soon as I get them, you will too.
Thank you all so much for your messages of encouragement (both public and private) over the past few weeks. Knowing that I had the support of my friends here really gave me the courage to see things through.
I’ve got lots of great things in store for the blog. Keep stopping by so you don’t miss out, and thank you, as always, for reading The Lingerie Addict!
